I was browsing between different blogs and I found this...
This was at A Flight of Minds, so if you want to read what Alex has to say, and boy I say read it ,click here.
I never thought I'd see the day where the classics would be put to such lows. But I guess if you wait long enough, you get to see everything crash and burn. You know that red circle over there? For those of you who don't see it, it says:"Bella and Edwards Favorite Book."
Yeah, it's no longer a GREAT CLASSIC, nooO! In fact forget about the richness of the writing, cause that is clearly NOT important. Nor the authors imagination. No, you have to buy it because its "Bella and Edwards Favorite Bloody Book." Emily Bronte is probably having a fit in her grave.
Does everything have to be Twilightised? I mean, even Evermore people bought it because "it was very similar to Twilight." Not to be a party pooper to those Twilight fans out there, because really, Twilight ain't the problem, the book itself ain't the problem. It's the bloody fanaticism that is making me bloody mad! Bed Sheets, spoons, not surprise if we get to see diapers with the form of Edwards face.
This book has been in my 'Classic's to read before I die' pile for the longest time. And you know what I hate the most? Is that I actually like the cover. It's, like Alex said, very Twilight-esque. They made it look like a YA novel. Less threatening, so that people might actually read it.
Actually, if you want to change the cover of a classic, be my guest, but just don't put on the bloody front, like it's the only reason in the world to buy it, that since is some fictional character's favorite book, it's going to be yours too.
And since I'm already babbling about Twilight I will leave you guys with a pic to the new Volturi cast.
Since I wasn't a big fan of the movie, I'm not dying to watch the second one. But who knows, miracles do happen... I think.
PS; Dakota looks kick ass. And what do you know, the movie is being released on my B-day, November 20.
